This week on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Oliver ripped the Republican Party for voting to repeal Obamacare before they have any form of alternative idea to replace it.
“Obamacare is not perfect,” he said. “It had and has serious flaws.”
The Healthcare.gov website was broken on the first day of the rollout, Oliver said, and Pres. Barack Obama made a promise he couldn’t keep, that people would be able to keep their current doctors and plans under the ACA.
“Republicans have happily complained about the flaws in the law, taken no responsibility for fixing them and in fact have often undermined the whole thing. But that time is now over,” said Oliver.
“It is their turn to present a plan,” he said, “and the clock is ticking. Insurance companies are deciding right now whether to even offer Obamacare plans for next year.”
So far, in terms of an alternative plan, Republicans have “got nothing,” he said. They stall, they delay, they make promises, but so far there’s been no evidence of any progress.
Time is running out for the GOP, though, he said, “Tick tock, motherf*ckers!”

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’
Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.
Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.
"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."
Trump melts down on Twitter after his own Supreme Court appointees rebuke him on financial cases
On Thursday, following the 7-2 rulings from the Supreme Court rejecting President Donald Trump's claims of absolute immunity in the New York tax returns and House financial oversight cases, the president took to Twitter to complain.
In the thread, Trump whined that he was being unfairly targeted by the Supreme Court decisions — which were joined by the two justices he appointed — and claimed he was a victim of "prosecutorial misconduct."
We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAIGHT...and nothing happens to them. This crime was taking place even before my election, everyone knows it, and yet all are frozen stiff with fear....
